Review by Bonnie Cehovet

I truly wish that I had had this app when I was learning the Tarot! It provides detailed meanings for each of the 78 cards of the Tarot, and then takes it on step further by discussing the cards in relation to their position to each other within a Tarot spread or layout. Anytime a reading is being done, and the reader hits a snag in interpretation, this app can be pulled out, the exact cards pulled up, and interpretations pulled up.

The initial screen shows the following options: Introduction, How To Use, Additional Spread Information, bios for Karyn Easton and David Wong, legal, help, and info.

Under “How To Use”, the user is lead through a sequence of ten steps that easily bring up any card combination, from one to four cards. Essentially, you access the screen with the four blank cards, pick the suit that you want to work with, scroll through the cards, picking the card or cards that you want, dragging the card to the chosen slot (blank card space). Repeat the process until you have up to four cards in a combination to be assessed. Once your cards are chosen, press the Reveal button. You will see relevant keywords relating to the combination, as well as a rating for the combination.

What is the Ratings System? According to the app, it is the Ratings System that makes both the Tarot Card Combinations app and the Tarot Lovers Tarot Reading app unique. The cards carry ratings for Love, Health, Wealth, Happiness, and the Character of a person.

For each card, the app shows upright and reversed meanings. An added bonus is that there is a rhyme for each car … in combination with other cards, the rhymes make a delightful poem for each card combination.

Under Additional Spread Information, we see what multiples of any of the numbers mean in a spread, what multiples from the Major Arcana or any of the suits indicates, the meaning of traditional card combinations (such as the Empress with the Eight of Cups), and positional meanings from the spreads in the Tarot Lovers app, Under Legal” we see Terms of Use. Under “Help” the user is guided to specific pages for specific information. Under “Info” the systems info for this app is presented.

I am not a techie by any definition of the word, but I found this app very, very easy to download and work with. Information is provide on the cards individually, on the cards as they relate to each other, and much more! Everyone from a beginning student to a dedicated Tarot expert will find something for them in this app.

Drag and drop … the information comes up, and the story is formed!
